What is DAR?

The Daughters of the American Revolution is a women's organization started in 1890 to celebrate heritage and honor ancestors who bravely sacrificed to aid the cause of the American Revolution and subsequently put forth the foundation for America, a country built on freedom, equality and justice. Since then, the organization has survived through multiple wars, stock market crashes and the changing roll of women to be the largest genealogical based club, having had nearly a million members. Today the DAR has something for everyone, from genealogy, historic preservation, literacy promotion and so much more. The women in the DAR build lasting friendships and are able to help the community.

Can I join?

Any woman over 18 who can trace their heritage back to a direct ancestor who aided the cause of the American Revolution is eligible to join. These patriots can be men or women and have either fought for the cause or aided in some way either by donating money, equipment, clothes, or food etc.
